"Out Of My Mind" is the 28th single by Duran Duran. The song is part of the Duran Duran album Medazzaland, but was released as a single from the soundtrack to the 1997 Val Kilmer film The Saint.

About the songEdit

During the development of Medazzaland, "Out Of My Mind" was written by Simon Le Bon as the last of a trilogy of songs for his late friend David Miles (the others being "Do You Believe In Shame?" and "Ordinary World"). The original working title for the song was "Got to Get You Out of My Mind".

After the album was complete, Capitol Records shopped around certain tracks to Hollywood movie studios, hoping to get a Duran Duran song attached to one of the year's summer blockbusters. In January, Paramount Pictures showed interested in including "Out Of My Mind" on the soundtrack album for The Saint.

In March 1997, the soundtrack and single for "Out Of My Mind" were released internationally on Virgin Records, marking the first time a Duran Duran release (single or album) had been released on an imprint other than EMI/Parlophone (or EMI subsidiaries Capitol/Harvest for North America).

LyricsEdit

Light a candle
Lay flowers at the door
For those who were left behind
And the ones who've gone before
But here it comes now
Sure as silence follows rain
The taste of you upon my lips
The fingers in my brain
Ever gentle as it kills me where I lay
Who am I to resist?
Who are you to fail?

Got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you what's left to believe in?

And I could be so sorry
For the way it had to go
But now I feel your presence
In a way I could not know
And I wonder
Do you ever feel the same
In whispering darkness
Do you ever hear my name?

Got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you, what's left to believe in?

How could you dare
To become so real
When you're just a ghost in me

And I've got to get you out of my mind
But I can't escape from the feeling
As I try to leave the memory behind
Without you, what's left to believe in?

Here in the back of my mind
Deep in the back of my mind


Music videoEdit

The video was filmed by director Dean Karr in February, at the historic Krumlov Castle in the city of Český Krumlov, in the Czech Republic. [1]. It featured many special effects, including the use of sophisticated prosthetic makeup to age singer Simon Le Bon over the course of the video.[2]

B-sides, bonus tracks and remixesEdit

"Out Of My Mind" featured the two b-sides "Sinner or Saint" (written specifically for the movie) and "Silva Halo", an album track from Medazzaland.

There were a multitude of remixes done for the track, mostly by the Perfecto crew (Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne).[3]

The single peaked at #21 on the UK Singles Chart in May, and at #14 in Italy.
